Format: Audio CD
Hip-O Records gives a new meaning to the word "Ultimate", with this wonderful collection of legendary Conway Twitty. Conway probably sang some of the best remembered country songs ever recorded. A good example is "A RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA" with Sam Moore is the greatest. Twitty's duets with Loretta Lynn - "AFTER THE FIRE IS GONE" and "LOUISIANA WOMAN, MISSISSIPPI MAN" is featured on this album and is nothing less than classic. Conway's growling voice was unmistakable and thoroughly his trademark.
A stand out - "IT'S ONLY MAKE BELIEVE, if you can find a better collection of Conway Twitty's best of or greatest hits on any other CD, it would be a miracle. Andy McKaie with Hip-O Records has come up with a complete and enjoyable journey through the musical career of the most beloved country ballad singer of our time!
Total Time: 56:22 on 18 Tracks/ Hip-O Records - HIPD 40049 (1999)

Conway's growling voice was the best. The songs on this CD are some of the very best of Conway's. The duet with Sam Moore"Rainy Night In Georgia" is the greatest.

Ultimate Collection is, IMHO, the best small compilation of the hits Conway Twitty released over his career. The best thing about the album is the inclusion of "That's My Job", which is my favorite song - that's what my father would always say when you thanked him for something he did for you - so it may only be an emotional favorite, so sue me. I do have to voice a gripe about the liner notes, though. The statement: "By the end of his life, it didn't really matter how good Conway Twity's records were. His day had passed, although his run had been among the longest." Liner notes are supposed to be a history of the artist, not a chance to kick someone who isn't around to defend themselves.

When this first came out from Hip-O Records in August 1999, by far the best Conway Twitty compendium on the market was the 3-CD box set The Conway Twitty Collection from MCA Nashville, which contained 14 of the 18 tracks presented here. Then, in August 2004, the same outfit released "25 Number Ones" with 11 of the 18 tracks here, plus 14 more # 1 hits (he had 40 # 1's among his 97 Country hits plus another 25 that made the Country Top 5), followed in March 2006 by the 2-CD set Gold, which has 15 of the tracks in this volume. Each of those is still available.

This has excellent sound as well as 12 pages of background notes written by Colin Escott, along with a discography of the contents and several more nice vintage photos, although forget about reading the last two paragraphs completely. It seems that, whoever finalized the insert decided to throw in another photo of Conway on page 12 in such a way that a lot of the black ink text is completely lost in the black of his hair. Someone didn't properly proof-read before release.

Before he embarked upon a career that would lead to induction into the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 1999 (six YEARS after his untimely death at age 59 on June 5, 1993 - what were they waiting for?) was, of course, among the original Rock & Rollers holding sway in the mid-1950s, even starting his career with Sun Records where Elvis, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis also got their careers kick-started. But whereas each of the foregoing is a member of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, that body continues to ignore Conway. Why?

Conway was a Nashville recording artist but I always considered him an outstanding pop singer with some country influence. I once saw this incredible concert at Ballys in Las Vegas with Conway, Merle Haggard, and George Jones. And Conway blew these two greats off the stage he was an incredible entertainer need I say more? And the women they always melted when Conway got down and into it. With your death in 1993 I cried like a baby and am not ashamed to admit it. You are dearly missed rest in peace.
